    Do you have a secondary computer. A notebook, even a netbook would do. You could use that to create the Windows 8 recovery disk.

    WiFi doesn't work, and I don't have a way to create a wired internet connection.

    I've installed drivers from gateways site, but still nothing. PC won't even recognize wireless card.

    Your using release preview, thats your problem.

    My TP link drivers just never worked in Release Preview. I then downloaded the final version of windows 8 (RTM) and EVERYTHING WORKED OUT OF THE BOX. Microsoft nailed it!

    tldr; get the rtm edition. It's "Windows 8 final with updated driver support'
